Eclipse Government Day

Eclipse in Government Day is a day-long event that shows insights into how Eclipse technology and Open Source is being used in various governmental agencies and related industries. This day is targeted primarily for technical managers, architects and directors who oversee and use Eclipse technology on a daily basis in Government. The event will be considered a success if we increase the knowledge and social networks of the various Government Organizations that are using, building and extending Eclipse technologies.
